We've been going to Chester for years but have only just found this gem. In fairness it was only opened as a bar/restaurant in 2008, and it's up a flight of wide stone steps, but that's no excuse.
The place is worth a visit just to read it's history, going back to Jacobean times and the interior, accordingly, is fascinating.
A superb range of beers, most if not all brewed locally. I had a really nice light ale and my wife also speaks highly of the Rioja, served by the glass if you prefer.
Our meals were excellent - braised stake pie with fat chips. It was nice to be told that Skate was off the menu as they had been very busy that day - always a good sign.
Excellent friendly service by the staff. Highly recommended.

If you can't find a beer you like in here, you might as well stay at home.

Fabulous ale selection, with something for every palate. This beer is clearly looked after by people who know what they are doing.

Staff are smiley, pleasant and 'easy on the eye'.

In the words of Arnie..... I'll be back.

I went for lunch with a friend and this was our second visit. The place itself is quite unique and if you like beer it has a good selection. However we stuck to wine which was good and quite well priced. The one dissapointment was the food we both had the steak pie one of which appeared to have a lot of meat in the other unfortunately had very little. The chips however were the worst I have ever tasted, in fact I would not call them chips - more like overdone large potato wedges (skin on!). This always worries me as I wonder how well scrubbed the potatoes are considering all the pesticides that are used nowadays.

My final comment is that the young staf who were behind the bar ans serving the food are delightful,
